Re: Fangraphs Q&A with Hanigan
I see 2 things that may differentiate the 9th from any other inning.
1) There will be pitchers that can't handle the pressure. Rick has alluded to this many times.
2). The offense may be in "just scrape across the tying run" mode, at least more so than other innings.
Unless I am missing something, given the above, what makes Marshall unworthy for the 9th as opposed to other innings?
